Happy Mother’s Day! Hope you all had a great weekend. We bought breakfast for my parents this morning at Panera. We should probably go out for a nicer breakfast for Mother’s Day, but the crowds. Goodness!
Our weather was nice on Friday. It’s getting warm enough for our downtown walks on Friday for a beer. That’s only a warm weather thing because I don’t want a cold beverage in winter. It was even nice enough to sit outside at night.
This was a red ale and not a pale ale – it was just in this glass. I don’t like the pale ales at all.
It was supposed to be rainy on Saturday, but it was just cloudy when we got up, so I decided to risk going for a ride. John declined. It was one of those times when you go for a bit, check the radar, keep going, check the radar, and so on. I was able to just keep going enough to get in 18 miles! Yeah! Especially on a day when no riding was expected.
I also lucked out. As I was zooming down the road, I caught a flash and thought “was that money?” I turned around and sure enough, a squished bill was in the road. Turns out it was a $20 bill! I feel bad for whomever lost it, but I appreciate finding it.
Lunch was on me! John suggested going to Saratoga for lunch at BurgerFi. This place is good. It’s like 5 Guys, only a little more atmosphere.
Good thing I rode 18 miles…
Eldest NY niece got a last minute date for prom, which is next weekend. It was a scramble for a dress and I met them at a local store that had bought out a closing bridal/formal boutique.
There were lots of choices and Logan finally settled on nice dress. I actually tried a dress on myself. It was a sequined cocktail dress. Super cute and only $40, but really – I have no idea where to wear it. I’ll just spend that money on flowers for the garden 😀
This weekend I finished my desk! That was on my goal list for May and with rainy weather, I knocked that out.
Again, here was the before look.
I was able to save the top, which really made me happy. Finished up:
Closer look at the top:
I love the grain. It’s so pretty. The desk cost $50 and the hardware was $7. I used paint and stain we already had, so for $57, this turned out really nice!
If only I could summon up as much excitement to clean my closet…
